Producer Ekta Kapoor, who is credited for revolutionizing Indian television landscape with a battery of successful shows over a period of two decades, is now a mother to a child, son Ravie Kapoor.

The television czarina welcomed her first child via surrogacy. According to reports, the child was born on January 27 and is healthy. The Kapoor family is set to bring their little bundle of joy home soon.

“By God’s grace, I have seen many successes in my life, but nothing beats the feeling of this beautiful soul being added in my world. I cannot even begin to express how happy my baby’s birth has made me. Everything in life doesn’t go the way you want it to but there are always solutions to those hiccups. I found mine and today I feel immensely blessed to become a parent. It is an emotional moment for me and my family and I can’t wait to begin this new journey of being a mother,” Ekta said in a statement.

For the uninitiated, Ekta is not the first one in her family to opt for surrogacy to enjoy parenthood. Her actor brother Tusshar Kapoor also opted for the surrogate route to embrace fatherhood in 2017. He is a father to a one-and-a-half-year-old son, Laksshya Kapoor.

Ekta Kapoor and Tusshar Kapoor are the children of veteran film actor Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor. Ekta has named her son Ravie Kapoor after her father’s original name.
